I’m going for the best. It’s my very first out-of-state art show, all the way in Scottsdale, Arizona. There are a lot of art shows in Arizona (no, really, a LOT) but by all accounts the Scottsdale Arts Festival is the best. And only the best will do! So I’m off to Arizona!

My art and I will be in booth 32. Come take a look! It’s going to be a beautiful show.

    I’ll finally get to meet you! I am so excited to see your work in person.

      It’ll be great to see you Quinn! And actually, we did meet once before, but it was a very long time ago. You were doing a show, maybe Paradise City? Anyway, I’m very excited to finally show in Arizona. See you there!

    Barbara- it was great to meet you at the Scottsdale show. I’m sorry you had such terrible weather! I loved seeing your art & talking “big-dot pointillism.” 🙂
    Your work is gorgeous, and I’ve already told a few people about you. I hope your next Scottsdale show provides fair weather & deep pockets!
    Much luck. Keep painting 🙂

      Thank you for the encouragement Heidi, it is much appreciated. I’m still mulling over whether to try again next year.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
